HOW INTELLIGENT TECHNOLOGY CREATES A PREMIUM HOME ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE
The popularity of smart homes, which use connected devices to perform actions and automated routines, continues to grow. For example, research predicts that the number of smart homes worldwide will surpass 350 million by 2023 and over 450 million by 2025.
“Smart TVs are no longer a futuristic concept but are a reality for most homes. These devices are so advanced that they no longer solely provide world-class entertainment, but can now sync with smart assistants, allowing users to adjust lighting, or even display connected security camera footage,” says Jobin Joejoe, Deputy Managing Director, Sony Middle East and Africa.
“The popularity of this smart technology continues to grow and has become an essential part of the modern-day connected home,” he adds.
Smart TVs and cinematic audio systems have advanced to easily integrate into other intelligent home aspects, such as lighting and AI assistants, to create a premium home entertainment experience.
For example, intelligent Android TVs now feature a Google Assistant, which allows viewers to check the score of their favourite team, control their TV, dim the lights, and so much more, using just their voice.
Here are other ways this technology helps create a premium home entertainment experience.
Intelligent TVs offer more than just exceptional viewing
TVs have become incredibly intelligent. For example, the newly announced BRAVIA XR range not only analyses content and recreates it the same way humans see and hear in the real world using its Cognitive Processor XR™, but it also features Google TV.
Google TV brings together movies and series from across the viewer’s apps and subscriptions and organises them based on the viewers’ preferences. This makes it easier to discover new things to watch with recommendations based on viewing history and subscriptions.
This technology allows these TVs to integrate into a smart home and link to devices such as a Google Assistant smart speaker. That will enable viewers to control their TV by voice, cast content from their mobile devices, or even dim lights to create the ideal movie night ambience.
Complement intelligent entertainment with premium sound
Intelligent home entertainment wouldn’t be complete without a premium soundbar that can recreate movie theatre-quality audio and deliver authentic surround sound with bass to enhance the overall viewing experience and put the viewer in the heart of all the action.
This technology enables users to enhance their TV viewing experience and connect sound from any device. Soundbars like the Sony HT-RT40 feature wireless listening so users can enjoy all their content and music wirelessly. They can also stream audio through their smartphone or tablet and make a one-touch connection to Bluetooth® via NFC.
With all the advanced entertainment technology available today, it’s become even easier for people to build their dream connected home and incorporate intelligent home entertainment that can create the perfect entertainment space.
